Eric and I are departing on our first European vacation this evening. We are flying directly into Heathrow (a 10 1/2 hour flight – gah!) and will be staying in London for two nights. We hope to see Westminster Abbey, Parliament & Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, and a couple of good pubs while we are there. Then we will catch the Eurostar to Paris where we will stay with our very generous friend, Harmony, for a week! She is renting a small apartment in Montmartre, the town where Amelie was filmed. While there, we plan to explore the beautiful neighborhoods of Paris and see the many sites. We also have day trips planned to visit the Palace of Versailles and Disneyland Paris.
We have attempted to save for a vacation like this many times over our almost nine years together, but something always comes up that uses all of our savings (car repairs, etc). I think what got us to make it happen this time was the invitation to stay with Harmony. How could we pass that up?
I’ll be back to posting the week that we return. Wish us Bon Voyage!
